A UFE workshop led by Jeannette Huezo at a conference sponsored by the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (NNIRR) in Houston, TX. This workshop engages participants in sharing personal stories of their family or ancestors emigrating to the US, explores the history of the "push" and "pull" events, trends, policies, and laws that drive workers and families from their homeland, and identifies strategies to bring immigrant and native-born workers and communities together in a movement for economic justice.

The NNIRR 3-day conference is called: Claiming our Rights, Envisioning our Future: Communities Organizing for Justice. For more information...
